Whether you are coming off a hectic work week, or just need some time with your girlfriends, a day at the spa can be a wonderful way to relax and catch up. In fact, the only difficult part of your day may be deciding between the different forms of massage therapy and relaxation techniques offered to you.
A great way for you and your gals to kick off the day is to slip out of your clothes and into a full body wrap. This treatment offered at many day spas across the country is a wonderful and easy form of stress relief. Your body is gently nestled in warm linens which have been lined with mud and other minerals. The soothing heat from the mud causes your body to perspire, which in turn helps you to sweat out any toxins, as well as hydrate your skin.
Next, a great way to relax both your muscles and your mind, is to hop into a mineral or steam bath. You can chat with your friends while the heat and humidity gently opens your pores and soothes your tired muscles even more.
Once your body has been detoxified and your muscles relaxed, this is a great time to enjoy a soothing full body massage. Whether you decide upon aromatherapy, a warm stone massage, or the every popular Swedish massage, you will now be in a state of pure bliss.
Finally, a favorite way to cap off a spa day is to pamper your face and your nails. You and your friends can take turns trying out the different facial treatments, or decide to enjoy mimosas while getting a pedicure. Whatever you decide, when you leave for the day you will be refreshed, recharged, and ready to handle whatever comes your way.
